Manchester Wheel

I made this one a few years ago, Saturday  the 4th of February 2006 at 12:35 to be exact. The wheel had arrived in Manchester a couple of years early amid some controversy. Some people said it spoiled the square and was a poor imitation of the London Eye, others thought it was a great attraction that would give tourists and resident a new view of the city. The last wheel was dismantled and moved to Edinburgh in 2012. There were plans to erect a much bigger wheel, rising up to 300 feet in 2008, but these plans never materialised. I like the space as it is now, but would not object to the wheel returning for a couple of years.
